    There are some other minor possibilities to consider because the first tie breaker is rank in the group if Tunisia loses to Angola with 7-14 margin, Iran will be (at best) 3rd in the group. that will leave no chance for Iran. Tunisia can lose and still qualify, if they lose by 10 or less they still will win the group (if Iran also beats PHI) Angola is still alive too, if they win by 11 or more. they will win the group (or if they just win and Iran loses) in both cases for Tunisia and Angola they need China to beat Nigeria . the other group with CHN-NGR is less complicated, the winner will win the group. if Nigeria lose they will be eliminated for sure because after all an African team (Angola or Tunisia) will win Group N.

    Yeah, unless it's a mark sport and there is a tie in the score/time, only one bronze should be given. All combat sports should have bronze match like Fencing does.

    I mean, most people would take 9 golds over 10 bronzes, but what about 1 gold over 10 bronzes? That's why a point system is probably the best. The question is which one? 3-2-1, 4-2-1, 6-2-1, 9-3-1 are all different types I've seen. Then we have ones that take into account population or GDP or a medal to event ratio...

    Riots in (West) Papua after an allegation of Papuan students breaking a flagpole and threw the Indonesian flag to a sewage ditch in Surabaya, East Java... The alleged flag in the sewage photo spread quickly in WhatsApp and FB. Later the Papuan Students Dorm in Surabaya (yes, it exists because no one really want to rent rooms for Papuan students) was surrounded by angry mobs plus members from ultra nationalist group. Also starring the I-don't-know-why-they-are-there Islamic Defenders Front supporters. Funny when a group that wants to change the nation's ideology so bad also take part in "defending the national symbol", perhaps crowds and riots attract them lol. Police forced their way to the dorm and arrested (but later released) the students. Unfortunately a viral video in WhatsApp about the incident enraged Papuans, where some people yelled "Monkeys!" and "Dogs!" to the arrested students. Even worse, hoaxes about a Papuan student got killed started overflowing in WhatsApp. And those in Papua started demonstration demanding police actions. Fortunately non-Papuans are not attacked, instead the local council building was burned. Papuan students in other province also voiced their concern with mass rallies. 3 viral WhatsApp posts = riot in 2 province

    After Judo we have 13 nations on the medal table . There’s also quite a bit of history already. won 2 gold medals today! That’s 1/4 of their all-time gold medal count. They also sit 5th in the medal table now. won their 6th medal of all-time!!! It was a bronze in women’s judo. won their 2nd medal of all-time!!! It was a bronze men’s judo. also managed to snag a rare non-North African judo gold today. got 2 bronze medals. Very impressive performance for a country with very little history in judo. sent 18 judokas, 11 won medals. That’s an impressive stat for such a young team. (I believe managed the same feat as well) The Beach Volleyball tournament is also looking like it will produce some interesting results. women continued to look good after their Commonwealth appearance. They took 9th in the tournament. has managed to make it to the men’s quaterfinals and have made it to the women’s semifinals Also the men’s side is interesting because , , , were all eliminated unexpectedly in pool play. The commonwealth nations are faring quite well here. Maybe the inclusion of the sport has incentivized and new part of the continent. Tomorrow will be the opening ceremony. Morocco is a 2nd world country with rich culture and amazing scenery. I’m expecting a good show (so hopefully I’m able to watch it). I also start university, so my posts are about to go from 60 to 0 very quick.

    Since we now know which nations are eligible to receive a tripartite invitations I decide to take a closer look. Currently 18 eligible nations have at least one shooter that has reached the MQS, including Kuwait which has already qualified quotas. Given that there are 24 quotas, it is likely we will seem some of them reallocated, though as Bolivia showed in 2016 nations could be given multiple tripartite quotas. One big difference relative to 2016 is that there is now a fixed quota for each event (2 per event) whereas 2016 the quotas could be spread however they pleased. This has a huge impact on the competition for the quotas. Overall the 10m events have the most competition with women's 10m air rifle having 11 eligible nations, including 3 nations (Andorra, Bhutan and Nepal) having their only MQS mark in this event meaning we can't even have all 18 nations entered. On the flip side both the men's 25m rapid fire pistol and men's skeet have two eligible nations (OMA/PAK and MLT/PAK respectively). Oman has the most options with eligible athletes in all events except the men's skeet. They also have an athletes with a MQS that's in the top two in five events, one more than Malta, Pakistan and Kuwait (ignoring events they have already qualified in). Of course, the quota doesn't necessarily go to the best tripartite nation as they take into account universality and how quotas in other sports are given out. This is why Bhutan is likely to be given the shooting quota despite being the second weakest nation in the women's 10m air rifle. Here's a list of current eligible nations from each event and their best score Men's 10m Air Rifle 1. - 624.7 2. - 621.9 3. - 617.0 4. - 616.8 5. - 616.3 6. - 614.0 7. - 602.7 8. - 599.4 (only MQS) 9. - 595.2 (only MQS) Men's 50m Rifle 3 Positions 1. - 1161 2. - 1152 3. - 1136 Men's 10m Air Pistol 1. - 577 2. - 574 3. - 573 4. - 572 5. - 570 5. - 570 7. - 569 8. - 565 9. - 563 (only MQS) Men's 25m Rapid Fire Pistol 1. - 583 2. - 571 Men's Trap 1. - 121 2. - 119 2. - 119 4. - 116 5. - 115 Men's Skeet 1. - 122 2. - 118 Women's 10m Air Rifle 1. - 620.6 2. - 618.8 3. - 617.3 4. - 614.7 5. - 614.2 6. - 613.6 7. - 609.7 8. - 604.3 (only MQS) 9. - 602.5 (only MQS) 10. - 601.8 (only MQS) 11. - 596.5 Women's 50m Rifle 3 Positions 1. - 1145 2. - 1142 3. - 1130 4. - 1125 Women's 10m Air Pistol 1. - 574 2. - 568 3. - 563 3. - 563 3. - 563 6. - 561 (only MQS) 7. - 560 8. - 556 9. - 553 Women's 25m Pistol 1. - 577 2. - 574 3. - 571 3. - 571 5. - 569 Women's Trap 1. - 121 2. - 120 3. - 112 4. - 104 Women's Skeet 1. - 115 2. - 101 3. - 97

    actually, nowadays all the shooting events are our worst events...and in rifle/pistol shooting we still have won only 2 quota so far... Mazzetti was a finalist here in Rio 3 years ago...and 1 of those few shooters who was supposed to earn an Olympic spot, sooner or later...but he failed once again (like Giordano in the men's Pistol and Zublasing -former world champion- in women's rifle events)... how can man be happy about our results in this sport in the last 2 years? moreover, shooting is a sport that I like and I normally watch every time there's a world cup stage and at the major world and Olympic events, so I want Italian shooters to be there, at least competing for medals (then, if they win it's better, but I'm still OK if they have at least a decent competition)... at the same time, I don't care at all if we are there or not (and even winning medals it's like if it does not happen) in sports I don't follow at all, like Rhythmic Gymnastics, Artistic Swimming, Equestrian Dressage, Tennis and so on...

    I'm mostly surprised you expected so much. If big African sports events have shown anything, it's that these are exactly the things that are generally just 15 levels below that of the rest of the world, maybe with a rare exception here and there. There might be all kinds of reasons for that so blaming it on them would be possibly unfair, but it's generally just better to expect it's not a fantastically organized event in terms of information, everything being ready, competitions running smoothly and so on. Better focus on the sports My motto for events like this (or at least I'm trying): "Expect nothing, then you can't be disappointed"

    I'm not sure they can even organize a continental championship in Africa, as they never show up at any competition (apart from a couple of South African among the juniors, but we all know how strict are RSA with their own qualifying criteria, so I think that there's no chance for them to get an Olympic spot)... that's why I wrote about match criteria (the main one, organizing a Continental Champs and not rejecting the quota when they get it)...

    If I was going to improve Modern Pentathlon (not that I really it needs to be), I would eliminate Equestrian. In Equestrian’s place I would Sport Climbing. Why? It fits the IOC’s modern and urban agenda. It’s unique from the other disciplines of modern pentathlon, and it requires some unused skill sets. I would add lead Climbing just to be clear. My format would be: 200m Swim, Fencing Ranking Round, 1 lead climb, Fencing bonus round, laser run (distance increased to 5km). That’s just my ideal format, I sure there’s many other opinions out there. I thought I’d just share mine.

    it seems FIFA didn't approve Iraq to host its home matches, I read different news about it. first says they just can't host it in Basra, 2nd says they can't host at all and it seems Iraq Football federation threatened to withdraw. this is kind of interesting because right now Iraq is hosting the West Asian Championship !! personally I believe Iraq deserves to host if they can guarantee safety. I just don't think Iran playing in Basra is a good idea. they can play anywhere in Iraq, just not Basra. that will be dangerous for our players. Basra was battleground during the Iran-Iraq war not long ago.

    I'm old and so out of touch with whatever is played these days (god of what? Red dead what?) or whoever are these sonicwho and ninja guys that 9 year old kids idolize. Only "new" thing I still follow are the indie games, because they are often old fashioned, so the only thing that I'm happy about from these awards is that award for the beautiful Celeste game which has all I can possibly need from a game
